Unfortunately, research activities conducted on the complex chickpea/Orobanche The development of chickpea cropping in the Tunisian agricultural system is facing several constraints mainly biotic. In addition to Ascochyta blight (AB), Fusarium wilt (FW) and root-rot complex which are reported to be the main serious and damaging diseases for chickpea, the parasitic plant Orobanche crenata and especially O. foetida is an emerging problem and increasingly becoming a serious threat in some regions of the country. remain limited and should be taken into consideration in the future research breeding programs. In order to limit the devastating effects of these parasitic plants, several strategies have been used for controlling broomrapes including chemical, cultural and biological methods but without success. An integrated control strategy based on the genetic resistance should be held and strengthened to control this damaging pathogen and rehabilitate and develop chickpea in the cropping system
